CARD is Updated Monthly | CARD Bait Capture Platform Released

Browse

The CARD is a rigorously curated collection of characterized, peer-reviewed resistance determinants and associated antibiotics, organized by the Antibiotic Resistance Ontology (ARO) and AMR gene detection models.

Analyze

The CARD includes tools for analysis of molecular sequences, including BLAST and the Resistance Gene Identifier (RGI) software for prediction of resistome based on homology and SNP models.

Download

CARD data and ontologies can be downloaded in a number of formats. RGI software is available as a command-line tool. CARD Bait Capture Platform sequences and protocol available for download.

Resistomes, Variants, & Prevalence

Computer-generated resistome predictions for 88 important pathogens. Includes sequence variants beyond those reported in the scientific literature, as well as prevalence statistics for AMR genes among pathogens, genomes, and plasmids.

CARD:Live

The CARD:Live project collects pathogen identification, MLST, AMR gene list, date, and geographical region for genome sequences submitted to RGI online, providing a dynamic view of antibiotic resistant isolates being analyzed around the world.
